I started my life as a computer scientist and a technologist. Since 2012 my primary focus has shifted to making art. My art is mostly conceptual. I never felt there is a big difference between how, as a scientist, I understood the world around me, and how I perceive my world artistically -- just two different viewpoints, complimenting each other. We are living in a very exciting time, where with every passing day, we are witnessing more holes to appear in the walls that separate art, science, and philosophy.
For subject, I pick anything that intrigues me, which covers a wide spectrum. I am deeply interested in how technology is changing how we define humanity. I try my best not to take a partisan position but remain a critical observer of the profound changes happening around us. This includes the effect of social media on society, the advent of artificial intelligence and robots, questions of consciousness of humans and machines, and how scientific thinking is affecting our understanding of philosophy, biology, morality, and religion. Apart from these intellectual issues, I am also intrigued by the universality of human experience, and often try to capture my own emotional states using the tools available to me.
For media, I use a very wide variety of tools. I often use active electronics in my project as it not only allows me to incorporate additional dimensions of movement and time, but I feel many of us, especially the younger audience, can relate easily with electronics, which surrounds us in our everyday world. My work is both two-dimensional and 3-D, both static and kinetic, mixing painting, sculpting, and physical objects.
The common thread that connects all this are the ideas and concepts that I try to explore. I change my medium, tools, and the visual aesthetics constantly, as demanded by the idea that I am trying to capture visually.
